Welcome to the Children's Room!
The Northborough Library Children’s Room, and the Peaslee and Zeh School librarians, are presenting our fifth townwide StoryWalk™!
This walk has been specifically designated as multi-generational. In honor of National Poetry Month, it will feature the poems of Emily Dickinson as well as favorite nursery rhymes.
What: Spring StoryWalk™ featuring nursery rhymes and the poems of Emily Dickinson
Who: Recommended for families, seniors, nature lovers, and kids at heart!
When: April 27 (after 10 am)- May 26
Where: Goldfinch Trail at Edmund Hill @ Northborough Senior Center. Parking available at the Senior Center.
How: Walk the trail, read the poems, and sign the guestbook!
The StoryWalk™ is along a half-mile portion of the Goldfinch Trail behind the Northborough Senior Center. Ample parking is available. As you walk, you will come across poems, page by page, mounted on stakes. You will not have to search for the next mounted page, as they will be visible along the trail. The poems will be a collection of Emily Dickinson poems (in large print) and favorite nursery rhymes. These selections are the perfect choice for a multigenerational walk celebrating nature and poetry.
You do not need to register for this event!
Please show up on time for scheduled programs. If a program has begun, the Children's Staff reserves the right to not allow entrance if it will be disruptive.
Also, many of the craft, science, and food-related programs require the entire time period, so showing up late will not allow for completion of the entire project.
Be careful with audio books! They can be finicky!
For people with multi-disc players, occasionally a
library CD will get stuck. This is true, mostly, for multi-cd players installed in
cars. Please play at
your own risk. Thank you!
Each month we get many more calls than we have spots in Children's Programs. Please remember, if you do not show up for a program, you have taken a spot away from another child who wanted to participate.
The Children's Staff asks that if you cannot attend a program you have signed up for you give us a call to let us know.
If you do not show up for a monthly program, you will not be allowed to sign up for the same program the following month.
If you are a frequent "no-show", you may be held from signing up for more or future programs.
